the city and county of san francisco. i also want to talk about the trend happening locally in terms of revenue measures such as the sales tax and vehicle registration fee that are administered by the authority. one of the things that is important as we move forward is to always look for the most cost-effective ways of doing the work. one of the things that i hope you continue to do is to focus on enhancing coordination among the various city agencies. we saw with a number of projects that were discussed at the authority that while there is communication between these agencies better communication is needed. and one of the things that i hope happens- especially with the major projects - that we continue to focus on how the county transportation authority interacts with the mta and other agencies involved in various projects that we are funding. i know that in the state of the city address, mayor lee indicated that public transportation % specifically the mta is going to be a top priority for him. i know he is putting together a working group that is going to be looking at those issue

the past several budget years due to difficulties with city budget to make cuts so substantial that would prove damaging to the commission's commission. this year, although budget news is good, it's not fantastic and the mayor's office is requesting what seems to be very minor cuts for the next two fiscal years. approximately $34,000 each of those years from us. our prior custom has been to respectfully request that our budget not be cut, but not ask for increases so that we maintain our independence as an independent agency in making these decisions. but yield to the realities of the budget year. i have not made that recommendation this year. it's really going to be a policy call for the commissioners, if i have to make a $34,000 cut i believe it would cause us some pain. but i believe it's doable. on the other hand, there are things that we need to do that just aren't getting done. so looking in the long-term, we just don't have enough staff for everything that is going on. so a possible approach would be to accept the cut in the spirit of cooperation, but direct me to work with t

that and i do agree with our d.a. that if one is charged with a crime in this city, your office does a great job of that, from my perspective. what i want to ensure is that we have a balance in the courtroom. and that justice and truth play out and that both offices are equally prepared for these cases. >> thank you, mr. president. we're only asking for an equitable level of resources. we do not want to be o staffed and certainly don't want to be in the place that the public defender's office is understaffed. i'm a strong advocate that the offices are properly staffed. >> supervisor mar. >> i would just like to ask if our public defender wants to respond? >> just very briefly. just to clarify a couple of points here. when supervisor chiu asked about the funding, or the staffing level of the district attorney's investors the public defender's office. this is actually an undercount, because both offices, both the district attorney and public defender use what is called "volunteer attorneys." and i don't know if this was in practice when you were there, but these tomorrows handle full-tim

different people about noise in the city. there are at least three different supervisor offices we're working with now because it can be loud with this many people living in such a small area. i know it comes in all sorts and people make it all sorts of different ways. the street music or street performance front, i should say that we sympathize with people who are disturbed by it. it's understandable that it's frustrating to have to go through your work there, your home life and hear lots and lots of loud noise all day. but from the government perspective which is who we are, unless someone is breaking the law there is very little that the government can do to stop people from talking or singing or performing. the main -- >> what about playing drums? >> the main tour we have right now is the noise level. you are allowed to have free speech. you're not allowed to have it any volume you want. that's the main constraint right now. and as far as entertainment commission is concerned, amplified sound is something that's within our jurisdiction. >> and when you suggest somebody does if the

volunteer from the department of public health to put this report together. and this is the city's business. this is really the city's business and we need to be responsible for these kinds of reports. moving now to "services." we have a proposal to augment funding for our legal services. under the leadership of our president julie su, we convened three committee meetings last november to really surface those issues that are emerging. and one of the themes that came out of these community meetings was the need for expanded legal services, domestic violence cases typically take longer. they are very labor-intensive. we heard consistently that the partner agencies that we work with could really benefit from increased community-based legal services. one of the things that came out of the community meetings also was a serious lack of community-based legal services dedicated to spanish-speaking victims and our proposal is to go towards that. the last piece of the proposal is "public outreach." we have partnered with the casa delas madres and we're focused on peace at home, a postcard with resour

promote this, their live performance permit to more businesses throughout the city so that they can partake in that. and then the planning commission is to talk to them i think in general about our process again. there's new planning commissioners all the time. it's not necessarily clear when they are doing cus and conditions on entertainment cu's but they understand what we do in our process. so, we'll take the opportunity to review that with all of the planning commissioners and hopefully inform them as they go forward about the kinds of conditions we're looking for. if those cu conditions stay with property, it is really important they understand what they're doing there. so, that's the seventh, which is soon, thursday. and [speaker not understood] date for the safety summit of may 13th at this point. i haven't done any widespread advertising of that date. so, if there is any commissioners have any concerns around that date, it's a monday, as always, let me know soon. otherwise we'll probably proceed and do it at the library as we've done in the past and work on our, you know, pa

the city of san francisco last 40 years; prior to the entertainment commission being established and met with -- and had an understanding how to allow entertainment without disturbing neighbors. we developed a win-win scenario. it has been carried forward, and that is following the process. one, the place of entertainment does as much soundproofing as is warranted and affordable. some of the clubs in san francisco as you know have done enormous levels of soundproofing and other clubs have done slight levels. depending on the kind of entertainment music and the time of day, the operation of the club will control the noise emissions and not bother the neighbors. it is a step one, step two process. in my role in this project i was asked to review the acoustical report written by mr. bellini who testified a while ago. in his report i believe he made a mistake. it is important that you understand that in my professional opinion the way i understand this report it should not be relied on because i believe it is flawed. i would be glad to go into detail about the flaw. on page 3 for example
